18 One Piece Closing Songs and My Favourite Is… [12/30]

As mentioned with yesterday’s most enjoyed One Piece intro post, with the anime having nearly one thousand episodes, there are some really good outros. It is sad though that from episode 279, the decision was made to no longer feature closing tracks.

Here is the 12th day and 13th post of my 30 One Piece Questions in 30 days series.

There have been 18 closing tracks for the One Piece anime:

The One Piece closing track I enjoyed the most: Eternal Pose

I am a binge watcher so I usually go straight to the next episode as quick as I can. However, I listen to each song at least once to be fair to the people who actually make them. When I listened to this specific one I had a nostalgic feeling. After listening to it a few times I placed it, it reminded me of another anime close to my heart, Bleach.

The outro song “Eternal Pose” is performed by Asia Engineer and it does not have a FUNimation dub version. The song was used for episodes 207 to 245.

‘Eternal Pose’ Lyrics:

The fragments of an almost-grasped dream are something unchanging
We chase after our aspirations, floating in the sky
Even when we’re exhausted, it’s something unchanging
Will we always be able to have the compass to search for them?

A small memory, I quietly open my notebook
This notebook detailing long-past actions
It’s a precious treasure even now stuck in the very back of my drawer
The content of the dreams that come in my sleep
Changes form little by little and without realizing it, I’ve grown up
How to make my dream come true
There’s no way to know, so I’m blue
The hard times come, making me cry, but my dreaming heart still remains
Fragments of a dream, scattered like stardust
They’ve disappeared now, but the light
Is still a precious treasure forever, somewhere deep within our hearts

A childhood dream, following the unforgettable thread of a memory
So that the embers that still burn my heart won’t go out
With my friends, I entrust our hopes to this familiar, clear sky
Across the changing times to eternity, eternity…

Can I say it’s fate?
We all met because we had the same thing
We talked through the night, laughed and played, that night we found the first star
wrote those memories in a new notebook
The method and direction to get to the next page
Now we’re putting up the sail and finally racing off together, down the course we’ve set, go!

Spending many seasons together we chased the same dream for a long time
If you turn around, it’s right behind us The past we threw away
Now we’re just letting the wind take us where our thoughts go
Just by saying, “I’ll never give up” I know, so I hope my voice reaches you!
A childhood dream, following the unforgettable thread of a memory
So that the embers that still burn my heart won’t go out
With my friends, I entrust our hopes to this familiar, clear sky
Across the changing times to eternity, eternity…

They say it’s not cool to have a dream these days
Time passes so quickly there’s not even time to turn around
But the idea I had is still there and something makes my heart dance
I don’t care what anyone says, I’m going down this road

The impetus is always something small so what’s different? My heartbeat
What’s changed is the circumstances and the sound of the wind Something unchanging is always there…
Someday we’ll arrive at the end of a dream but I want to grow up like this
Looking up at the endless sky to eternity, to eternity…
The fragments of an almost-grasped dream are something unchanging
We chase after our aspirations, floating in the sky
Even when we’re exhausted, it’s something unchanging
Will we always be able to have the compass to search for them?
I want to always be smiling…
